The 2017 Air Cabin Crew Fundraiser

('The World's Biggest Room Party')

will be held on

Friday 24th November 2017

at the 'Marriott Heathrow Hotel'

@ 1200

The Fund's 2017 Big Event Of The Year will have an exciting Flavour, Feeling and Fun Factor.

We plan to stage 'The World's Biggest Room Party' - aimed at attracting Current Crew, Retired Crew, Families and Friends. There will be a whole host of great features.

It will still include all of the favourite parts of the very popular 'Raffle Reunions' which have been a highlight of the ACCF over our 46 years.

More details will be posted here as the Great Day approaches.

The 2016 Event celebrated our 45th year and was also held at the Marriott. It was a huge success attracting many Cabin Crew and former Cabin Crew Members. Over £2,300 was raised to support the ever important work of The Fund.

There were 20 Raffle Prizes and over 200 Tombola Prizes. The Star Prize was a Trip for Two to Prague including return British Airways Eurotraveller tickets plus two nights at The 'NH' Hotel, Mozartova for two.

There are great sets of photos of the 2014 day (and of previous Raffle Reunion days) on the Internet here:-

There were 24 prizes in the 'Main Raffle' ~ the 'Star Prizes' being a chance to fly The Brooklands Museum Concorde Simulator and the 'Trip to Rome' described above. Many of these prizes were won in the room, on the day.

In addition there were 210 'Tombola Prizes' ~ where every £5 ticket purchased is guaranteed to 'B A Winner'. Needless to say they sold very well!! The Main Draw was hosted by Honorary ACCF Life Member the Rev John Ackland. Here is a very impressive 'Tombola Table' before the Prize Giving starts..

The 2017 Air Cabin Crew Fundraiser ('The World's Biggest Christmas Room Party')

will be on Friday November 24th from 1200.


2017 Memorial Day is to be at Brooklands Museum

The Air Cabin Crew Fund extends its sympathy to our friends and colleagues at the National Trust and at Clandon Park following the extraordinary fire that took place on Wednesday April 29th 2015

Please Click Here For Information

On the advice of the National Trust at Clandon Park it has reluctantly been decided that future Memorial Days will be held at Brooklands Museum until there is more clarity about the future availability of the Memorial Garden. Additionally, in recognition of our long standing connection with Clandon Park, the Fund has sent a donation towards their reparations.

Further information will be posted here as soon as it becomes available.

On an overcast day the 2014 Memorial Day was held at Clandon Park near Guildford on Monday 30th June.

2015 #5

At 3pm the Reverend John Ackland, an Honorary Life Member of the Fund, started the ceremony by welcoming 165 family and friends of our dear colleagues who have sadly passed away whilst in service or since retirement.

Following two minutes of silent tribute and remembrance, wreaths were laid in memory.
